Applications for IASPM 2021

Featured

According to IASPM Statutes, IASPM EC has to make the proposals for next biennial IASPM conference public for the members one month before the GM. This was done accordingly.

The IASPM EC received two proposals for the location of the XXI biennial IASPM conference. The proposals have now been taken down, by the request of Daegu (South Korea) officials, who were voted to be the hosts for IASPM 2021. Congrats to them, and big thanks for Oslo, for their bid.

Theme: Asia’s Sonic (under)Currents and Currencies

The recent international popularity of Korean pop groups BTS and Blackpink placed Asia from passive recipients to active participants of otherwise US and UK dominated global pop music.

The post•global or post•digital condition needs discussion.

cfp: Popular Music, Decolonization and Indigenous Studies (IASPM Journal)

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue: Popular Music, Decolonization and Indigenous Studies

Editors: Daniel Hernandez and Kirsten Zemke

IASPM Journal is the peer-reviewed open-access e-journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, IASPM. As part of an international network, the journal aims to publish research and analysis in the field of popular music studies at both global and local levels.

This Special Issue seeks to confront the Western tradition of academia, which has only been made possible through historic and ongoing processes and ideologies of colonialism.

This Special Issue of IASPM Journal aims to contribute to an ongoing process of decolonization through the lens and practices of popular music by highlighting Indigenous academics, theorists and musical explorations.

cfp: The Sound of the Past

What is the role of sound in historical fictions? How can we try to replicate what the world sounded like in the past? What is the role of music in period dramas? Why are contemporary musicals with historical settings so popular? How can sound be described in historical novels?

The Journal of Historical Fictions is looking for papers on any aspect of “sound”, broadly defined (music, mechanical sounds, songs that tell a historical narrative, voices, etc.) for a special issue on sound in historical fictions, ‘The Sound of the Past’. Please send completed articles of 6,000–8,000 words to mail@historicalfictionsjournal.org by 1 January 2020.

See our submission guidelines here:

http://historicalfictionsjournal.org/submit.html

We also have a rolling deadline for articles that relate directly to research and teaching questions on historical fictions of any kind, from all scholarly disciplines, and we welcome spontaneous submissions.
